According to STAT Search Analytics and RankRanger, Google is showing significantly fewer video boxes or carousels in the search results then it did just a week or so ago. It seems Google is showing about 30% fewer videos or so.
STAT notified me of this on Twitter and wrote “It looks like Google took away a good chunk of video carousels on the 13th across most markets. On desktop, single videos still remain, but on smartphone we’re seeing no replacement.” And it shows a similar pattern when I look at the RankRanger tool for tracking this as well.
Here is the STAT graph:
